Adinkra!

Doing some sketches for a shoe I’ll be painting soon. Mega excited!

One of the things I really look forward to when creating new pieces is the idea of “blessing” them. Imparting some kind of positive energy on the material through the symbols used or ideas expressed…and I do love me some symbology.

Some of my favourite symbols to use are the adinkra symbols from Western Africa. You have these very intricate designs packed with some very huge ideas and the energy surrounding some of them is just so awesome, I can’t help but use them!

I’m currently over on this site: http://www.adinkra.org/htmls/adinkra_index.htm picking out the ones I think would be awesome to use.

(I also just wanted to share what I thought was a great resource. Sharing is caring right?)

Just a quick little update 🙂 Hopefully I’ll have some pics soon.

Peace and Love, family
